There has been some interesting activity today, and I don't think it is JW related! Let me elaborate a bit...
My phone's log shows two different phone calls from the area where I grew up in SE Texas. One from my mother and another from someone who hung up after just one ring.
My mother (Yes, the one who is shunning me) wanted to deliver a message from my old physics teacher (one of my favorite teachers)... he just wanted to say "hello". I told her to tell him hello back. That was the extent of the phone call. I doubt it lasted more than 30 seconds.
About an hour later I received the one-ring phone call from the other number in a city neighboring where I grew up.
Here is the significants of this activity... Last year there was a story on the local news about a teacher (Duane Masengill) here in the Dallas area (City of Coppell) who was accused by a student of molesting her. The community rallied to his defense and the grand jury found that there was not enough evidence to do anything, so the matter was dropped.
When I saw his picture on the news I noticed that he bore a very strong likeness to a teacher I had in High School who was fired for some mysterious "inappropriate" behavior with a student. The incident resulted in a physical fight between him and the girl's boyfriend.
I could not remember the teacher's name, so I could not know for sure if he was the same person who was recently accused... so I called my high school and asked them for the name of the teacher I had. I ended up making many phone calls over several weeks getting a run around. They did NOT want to give me his name. I then sent several emails over several months. Again, nothing. I then sent a physical letter requesting his name and I got no response.
On Friday Sept. 24, 2004 I sent a certified letter to the school requesting the teacher's name under the Texas Open Records law (Tex. Gov't Code Ann.552.001 to 552.353) and threatening to sue if they did not release his name. I checked the delivery confirmation for the letter and it was delivered yesterday morning.
Now all of the sudden I'm getting these mysterious phone calls related to my high school.
I wonder if they are checking up on me now that I finally got their attention!
